  1. Re Galoot’s car problem. S/he avoids the question of whether personal transport solutions will stay as they are. This may be true for the next decade or two but after that, can the planet afford it?

  2. I use citric acid and bicarb across my home instead of commercial cleaners. I buy them locally ihn cardboard boxes. They do the job without the need for new plastic bottles or large quantities of water being transported across the country for me.

  3. Here’s a thought for your cardboard drinks cartons, which can only be recycled at the tip – at present that means making an appointment and burning fuel while you queue. Fill them from your waterbutt while it’s raining, then store them alongside (easy, since they’re conveniently brick-shaped to make a neat pile). Then you’ll be able to water your plants in hot weather without using a wasteful hosepipe. Using the weather to beat the weather – that’s a win-win.
